Prerequisite(s): EBIO 328
Description: The laboratory course is designed to demonstrate concepts and approaches introduced in the lecture course EBIO 328. The text book remains the same, but the course will heavily rely on the computational exercises provided in the text (called Weblems). Students will be shown how to conduct analysis of sequence data, search databases, literature, and how to synthesize such data. Students will conduct their own projects, some suggested by the text, some by the instructor, some perhaps ideas of their own. Students present and defend their results in writing and in form of presentations and posters. The course would be useful for graduate student education, with added requirements for graduate students.
